Course summary

About the course

This course is designed to develop your knowledge of how language works, in particular the English language, enabling you to describe and analyse English and other languages with accuracy and insight.

You’ll gain a solid understanding of phonetics and phonology, syntax, semantics and pragmatics, and explore how that knowledge can be applied to the practical analysis of spoken and written, literary and non-literary texts.

We place particular emphasis on analysing language in real-world contexts. Modules reflect staff expertise, which means you have the opportunity to engage with cutting-edge research in your area of interest.

We have a vibrant research community of national and international students, who often collaborate on projects and present their work within the supportive environment of our annual postgraduate conference. We hold a regular research seminar programme, with presentations by staff, students and visiting guest speakers, and organise and host conferences reflecting our own research interests.

Your Career

If you are an educational professional or planning on training as a teacher of English, this is an ideal course for you. It also provides a firm foundation for doctoral research into language and linguistics. It also equips you for careers in PR, marketing, management or any position using high level communication skills.

Career support

On graduating from this course you'll be well equipped for a range of careers, including teaching, publishing, broadcasting, writing, PR, marketing, advertising, and management.

In addition, the discipline-specific skills – in particular analysing interaction on both macro- and micro-levels – will equip you well for advanced study or careers which might include advisory jobs for multinational companies and private/public organisations which need expertise in intercultural matters.

The variety of specialist knowledge you develop will also equip you well for a career in research, policy planning or third sector or voluntary sector work.
